In 2009, Oregon's first statewide cultural magazine was born with 1859 Magazine, to shine a light on Oregon's cultural riches, to explore the people and the places that make our state one of the world's hidden treasures. In an intelligent and beautiful format, 1859 explores the landscapes, the personalities, the movers & shakers, the history and the architecture that is the jewel of the Pacific Northwest. For Oregonians, 1859 is an exploration of the state's rich history, its incredible destinations and colorful personalities. Departments like "What I'm Working On," "Game Changers" and "Sound Off" resonate with residents of Oregon. Departments like "From Where I Stand," "The Road Reconsidered," "Home Grown," "72 Hours" and "Top 5" are visual and editorial pollen that attracts the travel bee.
